Meet your food loving local guide in front of the Chania municipal market which is located in the city center. Your guide will be standing outside the main south entrance holding an ‘’Alma de Creta’’ sign.
We shall start the food tour by wandering through the old market savoring local delicacies such as olive oil, goat cheeses, olives and raki.
On our next stop you will taste the authentic bougatsa at an ‘’old time classic’’ place and the famous Cretan kaltsounia.
During the tastings, you will gain insight into Crete’s fascinating food culture, the evolution of the island’s cuisine, the healthy nature of locally produced ingredients and find out about all the secret eateries of the Old town of Chania.
While we navigate along the little alleys of the Old town we will visit a shop that sells local herbs and get informed on their medicinal effects as well as a shop that specializes on bee products where you can also taste the different varieties of honey.
The last stop on the tour is for a selection of scrumptious Cretan meze in a popular local eatery. Here, you will be able to try classic appetizers and main dishes of traditional Cretan recipes.
With your plates clear, our mission will be accomplished – you will leave happily full and with a much better understanding of the world of Cretan food.
PLEASE NOTE: As this is a walking tour, comfortable walking shoes are recommended, please do not forget your sunglasses and make sure you get a light breakfast since there will be plenty to eat. Also advise of any food allergies in advance.
